Davie Street Urban Revitalization

Urban Design, Vancouver, B.C.


This series of small retail shop fronts forms a colourful urban streetwall along Vancouver’s Davie Street. The urban design calls for the revitalization of the existing shop fronts. The idea here is to maintain the existing scale and rhythm of the urban streetscape while making necessary design upgrades to the colour and materials of the shop fronts.


Located in the West End, Davie Street is one of Vancouver’s liveliest walking streets and stretches from the Downtown Business District to Stanley Park. The West End offers urban residential towers and older apartment buildings along with a colorful mix of shops and businesses.
